Grit

Take One Action Film Festival presents a screening of Grit, a gripping portrait of a teenager finding her political voice, at CCA Glasgow on September 21st!

About Grit

When Dian was six, an earthquake, set off by natural gas drilling, sent a tsunami of mud hurtling towards her village. Ten years later, people in her community still seek reparation from the powerful mining company responsible for the damage. This portrait of a teenager finding her political voice offers a rousing tribute to youth activism and to the role of education in empowering young women.
